Kathi was the perfect hostess

Bit by bit a wonderful day was planned and executed. Barbara, Kris, Kathi and I came together from near and far to celebrate our past and upcoming (in most cases!) 60th birthdays together, as well as to reunite for the first time in a long time with Kris.  It was a perfect day, evening and next morning. Lots of high school memories were shared and with the help of a yearbook resurrected. We started at the Museum of Fine Arts which Barbara had to miss due to the bus being late. We met up in the park, walked through downtown on the way to the Harbor,  and sat and enjoyed the perfect weather. As dusk approached we made our way over to our rooftop cocktail stop and then on to a very, nice fish dinner. The restaurant realized we were having such a good time that it must have been a special occasion. We explained the birthday celebration, as well as our re-uniting after way too many years, and they offered us a fabulous plate of varied desserts. Perfect day with the most charming and dearest of friends.  Can't wait to do it again. And you are all expected in Rome.
